It’s a day-long celebration of giving!
We will be out in the community with CBC from sunrise to sundown, bringing you a special day of LIVE radio and TV broadcasts, music, stories, prizes, and charitable giving.
This year, CBC Ottawa will present a whole day of LIVE broadcasts with your favourite local hosts and reporters. Ottawa Morning, All in a Day and News at 6 will be live from the National Art Centre raising money in support of the Ottawa Food Bank.
Every month, more than 37,524 people are helped by the Ottawa Food Bank and their community food program agencies. Your support through CBC Project Give makes an important difference in their lives.

Our Table Cookbook:
This year, CBC Ottawa asked CBC Ottawa journalists and community partners to share their go-to recipes and the stories behind them. These recipes have been put into a limited edition cookbook that is called OUR TABLE because it includes a collection of memories and meals “from our table to yours”.
On Friday, Dec. 14, visit us at the National Arts Centre during our special Project Give programming and get your copy of OUR TABLE for a suggested minimum donation of $40. All proceeds will go to the Ottawa Food Bank.

Wake up with Ottawa Morning live from Equator Coffee Roasters at the National Arts Centre. Host Robyn Bresnahan will be joined by featured guests every hour—a local gelato maker, an athlete, a singer.
